Service and Community

A great attraction of being a pupil at Colston’s School is being able to take advantage of all the city has to offer. This does not only mean the local amenities such as theatres, the Arts, restaurants, cinemas, bowling alleys and shopping!

We feel it is very important for our pupils to leave us with the skills and confidence to make a difference to the society they will be part of and, indeed, responsible for. This can happen best if the pupils are themselves made aware of the various social factors that affect people's lives in the community. The pupils visit local charities: they want to help the local community with a variety of projects such as street cleaning, singing to elderly residents and helping out at, for example, Five Loaves and Two Fishes - a charity that provides support  for homeless men and women.

Our links with the local community are very important to us, and an ever-increasing number of pupils regularly leave the school campus to volunteer with a local charity or organisation, using their talents and energy to encourage and serve both young and old in the Bristol area.
